How To Be A Female Model
What does it take to Become a Female Model?
There are many different “looks” that females can have to break into the modelling industry, but learn from me How to be a Female Model. The girl next door, commercial, editorial, fitness, lingerie, sportswear, photographic or catwalk model to name a few. All female models need to be confident and capable in front of the camera, but also fresh faced, easy to work with, polite and relaxed. There are height restrictions for female modelling from a model agency point of view. In London its strictly 5’7 plus, taller for Catwalk Models, but in other areas of the country there are plenty of female models that work well at 5’6, and even 5’5. On top of this now many large retailers have a petite section for female models so don’t be put off if you are only 5’3 for example. You can still learn How to be a Female Model.
Its also worth mentioning that for TV commercials height restrictions aren’t as strict. For example, companies making furniture prefer to use less tall modes, makes the furniture look bigger! I have worked with 1000’s of female models over the last 24 years, and the ones that work the most are totally professional, bring the correct clothing if asked to do so (and plenty of it!). They are always on time, smile on demand, have a variety of poses and make the day run smoothly. If a good female model acts professionally then she can end up working for the same client for years.
There are lots of opportunities in the female modelling industry, and although its a great idea to pinpoint what type of modelling you want to do, there is no need to restrict yourself by only doing one or two styles. How to be a Female Model includes commercial and editorial photographic work, to health and fitness, sports and underwear, keep your options open. Furthermore there is TV extra work and much more lucrative TV commercials, or lesser paid Promotional jobs. Some model agencies deal with all these sectors, some with just 1 or 2.
There are also lots of freelance female models that advertise themselves on websites such as Purpleport, Starnow or Model Mayhem. This can be a clash of interests with reputable model agencies as they are trying to get you work, promote you, yet the model is doing the same themselves. Its wise to decide which route you want to go down to know How to be a Female Model as models rarely do both. The importance of working with reputable model agencies is that they deal with payments, expenses, usages. The have much more power dealing with clients when it comes to larger fees, usage fees and the work will be for actual companies. The danger of working as a freelance model is that you may be just working for amateur photographers at their houses, no contracts in place to secure the payment, and also think about the safety element.
Knowing How to be a Female Model and have a full time lasting career, its essential that you lead the right life. You need to look after your skin, your hair, your nails and your body. Eat well and drink at least 2 litres of water per day, and consider a gym membership or regular exercise. Also, get used to spending a little more time on your health and well being…and get plenty of sleep.
As the Founder of I WANT TO BE A MODEL, I know exactly what it takes to have a long and successful career as a model. In addition, I know what the industry experts are looking for in up and coming talent (most of the time). However, this can vary from agency to agency, city to city, so there are no set rules. If one agency says no, it can just as easy be a yes from the next. Working in the modelling industry is hard, so being resilient and learning to deal with knock backs is necessary.
The Model Portfolio Shoot – How To Be A Female Model
By booking a 1-2-1 model portfolio shoot with myself, you will not only be fulfilling the important requirement of creating your model portfolio, or by updating your current one, you will also be given an invaluable lesson into the modelling industry. You will also be given invaluable advice from my 2+ decades of experience on posing, expressions, how to work with with the outfit you are wearing and modelling to a brief/feel that a client may request. When you join a model agency, they will more often than not just send you out on your first job, with no training, you are thrown in at the deep end….and you will be expected to perform. No other company can offer you this detailed insight, call it a lesson if you like, which will prepare you for your first shoot.
After your model portfolio shoot, you will be brimming with the exact confidence and skills required to start pursuing your career as a male model. It will be the ideal time to start contacting local model agencies, as well as model agencies further afield for representation. This is where another unique selling point of I WANT TO BE A MODEL becomes a massive factor as opposed to places online pretending to be a model agency, or calling themselves a model platform (even though they have no real links to genuine model agencies).
I WANT TO BE A MODEL is not an agency, and certainly isn’t a model platform, but does have links to many of the TOP REPUTABLE model agencies throughout the UK. After the model portfolio shoot, I will forward your edited images to chosen model agencies. I must stress it is not my decision whether the model agency takes you on or not. This is a free service following the model portfolio shoot, and I will also provide a list of further reputable model agencies ensuring you won’t be sending images to places that will try scam you. Keep in mind that these model agencies receive 100’s of enquiries every week so often they never get looked at, but if I send them, they will look at them for me. Again I must stress, it is not my decision whether they choose to represent you or not.
Before making any decisions regarding booking your model portfolio shoot, or model masterclass for that matter, why not take a look at the hundreds of 5* reviews
as well as watching some of the video testimonials. If you go on a companies Facebook page and they have taken away the REVIEW section, you can be pretty certain they have done that because they get so many negative reviews. That’s a really good way to check whether a company is good or not, or Google their company name plus the words “reviews” or “model scams”.
I have nearly 600 amazing reviews from customers, models and parents so am very happy to showcase them for you to read.
Finally, although there are many glamorous elements to female modelling, plus of course the potential for financial gain, it is hard work and a full-time job. Therefore, it’s only right for those who are willing to dedicate themselves to their female modeling career…and then maybe you will be flown all around the world like I have been.
